Quick Giveaway

The winners have been announced! No need to comment on this post anymore, but we would still love to have you follow the blog’s RSS feed, like us on Facebook, and join our Flickr group. Who knows, maybe we will announce something similar one day…

This Friday (December 17, 2010) we are going to give away software to three random friends. All you have to do is like us on Facebook, join our Flickr group, or post a comment to this blog article (the one you are reading now). On Friday we will pick a random person from each of these three pools. If you are chosen then you can pick one of our products, yes even the Photo Bundle.

If you need help deciding which of our products you completely love then stop by our site where we have loads of images, video, and info. Our latest big improvements have been to Bokeh and Exposure. If you are in the middle of a holiday graphic design project, then maybe you need Eye Candy. I used it to make this frosty logo!

Alien Skin Software logo with winter effects from Eye Candy

The blog comment can be as simple as “howdy”. We just need the name and e-mail address parts filled out so we can reach you. Just don’t be offensive or link to web sites that are selling something.

Try Exposure X4 free for 30 days, and discover a new world of creativity with gorgeous customizable looks and a complete set of editing and organizing tools.

  35. Rocky December 15, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    Ask not what your SOFTWARE will do for me but what i can do with your SOFTWARE!!!

  36. Chuck (unklchuk) Miller December 15, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    Like your software. Like your name. Don’t have enough of it. But don’t pick me. I’m too old. I’d blush at winning. That would take blood away from the sildenafil citrate.

  38. J Hammell December 15, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    Keeping my fingers crossed. For a struggling graphic artist like me, winning this would be a godsend!

  40. Bill December 15, 2010 at 12:30 pm

    Nice. I hope I’m lucky this Friday…

  42. huffo design December 15, 2010 at 12:30 pm

    I hear Jeff makes a great cup of coffee.

    • Jeff December 15, 2010 at 1:08 pm

      Actually, it’s the programmers who make the great coffee. We got a sweet little espresso machine from Rancilio and it is used every day. Finley Lee, Mike Erickson, and Tom Welsh are the master baristas. Shout out to Illy and Counter Culture Coffee!

      • cam December 15, 2010 at 1:22 pm

        oooooooooooooh! do we get a cup of coffee too?

  43. Rick Brown December 15, 2010 at 12:30 pm

    Wow! What a great present this would be. It has not been a good year, so upgrades have been out off the question. This would really make up for it and keep me up-to-date.

  44. mike December 15, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    keep up the great work on here

  45. Jim Hinds December 15, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    Wow! One of the nicest (and most responsive to problems) software companies out there is giving away software.
    How cool is that?!

  46. Skip Middleton December 15, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    I’ve used so much of Alien Skin’s products, and I’ve never been disappointed. An integral tool for a lot of what i do. I can’t wait to try more!

  47. huffo design December 15, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    Thanks for a helping hand on my projects over the years!!

  48. Stephen Duclos December 15, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    Oh, winning would surely warm the cockles of my heart here in snowy cold Vermont!

  49. Ernest Burden December 15, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    At first I was worried you were going to ask we to retweet some inane phrase for a chance to win. Never going there. Thanks for your foresight, and some really great products.

  50. Michael Dwight Forbus December 15, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    I have been using your products for years and have not found any that compares in your creativity. Simple to use, brilliant response and genuises for writing the software. When I first got some sample downloads it took me a bit to get started but then you began to give tutorials and then it was like floating. I would vote your software as being one of the best on the market. Blessings to you all for your brilliance and I win either way. I am taking advantage of some of your temp. downloads now. But to have my own set would be great. I have a disability that keeps me from buying expensive software, a heart problem that took my two brothers at a young age, so studying new software keeps my mind off that past. Blessings to you all for your smart team and I pray you get all you want. Love Harder, Miguel

  51. Alexander Schmitz December 15, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    first I have to say: “AlienSoftware is great…”
    I would be very pleased if u pick me πŸ™‚

  54. Michael Brandau December 15, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    I have my eye on the Photo Bundle if I’m lucky enough to win. πŸ™‚

  55. Benjamin Thomas December 15, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    Long time fan!!

  56. Michael Dwight Forbus December 15, 2010 at 12:34 pm

  57. Rich December 15, 2010 at 12:35 pm

    I’d love to win, thanks!

  58. .Beth December 15, 2010 at 12:36 pm

    I’ve been using Alien Skin’s products for years. I’m a huge fan of them all but my favorite is Eye Candy Impact. I would love to have the new ones, such as Exposure, but due to the economy, it remains on a wish list. I’d love to win!

  59. Brian Gorman December 15, 2010 at 12:37 pm

    You are the greatest! Creative, smart, funny, great business people, and just plain fun. Have a great holiday! Brian

  62. Elliott Landy December 15, 2010 at 12:37 pm

  63. Marlon Ming December 15, 2010 at 12:38 pm

    Bokeh 2 is phenomenal!!!! Definitely some serious thought and engineering went it to this awesome software. I’m currently doing the 30 day trail along with onone focal point right now.

    Great Idea for this time of year!

    Keep up the excellent work and bring more of these great offers to us.
    Best regards to all for the Holiday Season.

  70. Steven Bobker December 15, 2010 at 12:43 pm

    Neat idea. I like that the blog comment is an equal option. Having had a real bad Facebook experience I won’t go back and Twitter is just too terse for me.


    • Christopher J H Lee December 17, 2010 at 6:53 am

      I agree Facebook & Twitter can be evil……

  71. Carrie Bayless December 15, 2010 at 12:43 pm


  72. Chris Murphey December 15, 2010 at 12:44 pm

    Alien Skin Software is always on my wish list, Happy Holidays

  73. Rochelle Broglen December 15, 2010 at 12:45 pm

    What a great idea! I used to have some of the products (at a company that spoiled me with software). I would LOVE to be able to work with them again at my leisure and without client restrictions on creativity. Thank you for the opportunity!

  74. Mollie Plummer December 15, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    Your software turns ordinary into extraordinary! Simply magic!!!!!

  80. Bob Warren December 15, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    The 64-bit Eye Candy update in the stocking would be sufficient but sure, I’ll take it!

    I own SnapArt and love it, thanks for the great product. I could always use more πŸ˜‰

  83. Michael McCarty December 15, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    Hey! Just a shout out for the Queen Bee! You guys get 2 thumbs up for creating some great software/ plugins! As a freelance graphic designer here in the Oxford, NC. area I would like to let everyone know that these plugins work with a variety of photo editors although only supported through Adobe Photoshop but don’t be affraid to try them out in other editors as well! I have been using Alien Skin Software for about 6 years now and I love it!

  84. Bryan Thompson December 15, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    Great idea, I did all three things and look forward to seeing your new products. I look forward to hearing from you and picking out my prize!

    LA MUG is a better Users Group because of fine folks like Alien Skin Software:)

    Thanks for the opportunity!


  109. Bill Karam(a.k.a. William Karam) December 15, 2010 at 1:03 pm

    Well, I have been using the Exposure 2.0 for 3 years, until I bought a new iMac and installed Adobe CS5.
    I tried every way for many days to install it on my new gear, but no luck.
    Perhaps the new version is more user friendly for CS5?
    Anyway, all the best,

    • Jeff December 15, 2010 at 5:25 pm

      Exposure 3 works great with Photoshop CS5. Sorry, but we are not updating Exposure 2 to be 64-bit. If you run CS5 in 32-bit mode then you can run Exposure 2.

  110. YES! December 15, 2010 at 1:03 pm


  111. Steven Grueber December 15, 2010 at 1:03 pm

    Have used all three versions of my all-time favorite plug-in, Exposure.
    Superior results all around.

  112. M Myricks December 15, 2010 at 1:03 pm

    I have used trial downloads of you software – it saves a lot of time. I would love to own a full copy.

  130. tom hyland December 15, 2010 at 1:13 pm

    I’ve used your software on a trial basis in the past and love it!

  131. Chris Mielke December 15, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    Very nice, I hope I win.

  132. Nick December 15, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    Just a little comment to say that I may not use my Alien Skin programs on a daily basis, but when I do, it Alien Skin pulls my chestnuts out of the fire, and is an absolutely great help, being able to do things that I don’t have the ability to accomplish by myself. THANKS!

  133. Ione Wyatt December 15, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    I used Alien Skin on a PC around 10 years ago for a while, & loved the effects, particularly when Photoshop & Coreldraw were much more primitive! Alien Skin gave easy drop shadows & great effects. Then I bought my own Apple Mac Tower 3 years ago, as I had retired from the airline I worked with ( as a stew!! Lots of opportunities for humour..) & wanted to concentrate on my cartoon work. Whilst finding a Mac, plus PSD & illustrator, etc, amazing, I kinda miss some of the great, easily applied effects of Alien Skin. I’d look at the videos & new programs coming in, as I kept in touch with your website. (I am amused you still keep that wonderful retro logo too!) I design lots of cards; doing book illustration at present, and some logos. Still haven’t got a website – as I am at present caring for elderly parents – so do not want TOO much work. It comes by friends. So I would LOVE Eye Candy.. Guardian Angel, thanking you in anticipation.. From ‘Oni’ – Ione Wyatt

  134. Bitte December 15, 2010 at 1:17 pm

    What a great christmas gift. I wish…….

  136. George Baker December 15, 2010 at 1:18 pm

  145. Brandon December 15, 2010 at 1:30 pm

    Just came across Alien Skin software (Exposure and Bokeh) last month, and I fell in love. The demos ran out, however, and now I’m having withdrawl (with no money to buy the full thing for the foreseeable future). Pick me? πŸ™‚

  146. Randall Seefeldt December 15, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    How do. (Sorry to get all formal on you, but I thought it might boost my chances.)

  147. jdawrrick December 15, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    Long time Alien Skin user. Great, great products. Bu it’s been a bad, bad year (!!) and, as the result of a move, I have been looking for my original disks (I recently received a new Mac) so I can reinstall and start using again. Getting some free software would be a big help! Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, etc.!!

  148. Darla Calvert December 15, 2010 at 1:35 pm

    I have enjoyed using your products and always love looking at the news stuff you come up with! I agree that the animated illustration in Jarrett Heather’s video is awsome, but the message is sort of depressing. Happy Holidays!

    Dear Santa, I would really like to win something. I have been a really good boy this year….well…errr…sort-of.

    Nice idea. I could make good use of the software as I have a large collection of photos that could use some enhancements!

  173. Norman Starley December 15, 2010 at 2:14 pm

    Great Product

  180. George J Rizzo December 15, 2010 at 2:30 pm

    Hi Jeff,
    IÒ€ℒve been using Alien Skin For over 20 years. Love it. My site portfolio is a testament to the package.
    I just upgraded my studio with the latest high end Mac system, but alas, couldnÒ€ℒt use my Alien Skin software with the new i7 Intel processor!!!
    A new set of compatible software would be a perfect gift for me. Hope I get lucky.

    Happy Holidays to all

    • Jeff December 15, 2010 at 5:15 pm

      If you are using the latest versions of our products then they should work with an i7 Intel processor. You can grab the latest from our downloads page. If you still have trouble then please go to our support site and submit a help request.

      • George J Rizzo December 16, 2010 at 1:32 am

        My bad.
        I should have mentioned that I tried to get away with using the older (Eye Candy 5) bundle which I still use on my Dual G5 system. That’s what I meant by compatible with the Intel i7.


  181. Juha December 15, 2010 at 2:30 pm

    I surely could use your wonderful programms! Merry Christmas to all!!

  182. Abreum Garcia December 15, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    I know I’m not going to win. But just thinking about it and imagining it warms my heart a little bit. πŸ™‚

  183. alan north December 15, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    I can’t afford it maybe I’ll win it thank you

  184. Terry Karney December 15, 2010 at 2:38 pm

    I’ve got several products, the film emulators are the ones I value most.

  185. Stinsonddog December 15, 2010 at 2:39 pm

    Hmm – just upgraded to PS CS5- how I can”enhance” it.

  186. Ron December 15, 2010 at 2:40 pm

    Been using AlienSkin products since Photoshop v5 — no better value in the plug-ins and filters market. I wish you made products for FCP and other video software!

  187. John Brandt December 15, 2010 at 2:46 pm

    This would be the comment to pick. Many thank yous. Love it.

  188. Dan Donovan December 15, 2010 at 2:46 pm

    Wow – looks like a great line-up of products!!!


  189. David December 15, 2010 at 2:47 pm

  190. Corinne Fudge December 15, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    I’m just blatantly begging to win πŸ˜‰

  191. Darlene Wilkinson December 15, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    You have no idea how much the taxes and duties are when we Canadians order your products online! I am in Florida for two months thanks to our kids kind hearts and bored in this cold weather so please pick me so I can play to my hearts content and get the creative juices flowing again.

  192. Darlene Wilkinson December 15, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    I almost forgot—Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

  193. Barry Pavel December 15, 2010 at 2:52 pm

    I sure could use an upgrade since I’m using version 5.

  194. Sharon Piran December 15, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    I love your products, and your people have helped me through many a design problem. I love you guys!! Happy holidays, all the best.

  195. Honor MacDonald December 15, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    What a delightful promotion idea… πŸ™‚ Your plug-ins are always best in class, and it’s no exaggeration to say my graphics and art work would be much more difficult without you. I would love the opportunity to become familiar with (and professionally dependant upon πŸ™‚ more of your products.

  196. Joe Myeress December 15, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    I’ve used Eye Candy for years! Very cool and easy effects. With that being said, PICK ME!

  197. Yasmin December 15, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    Using alien ss has revolutionised my B&W’s! Thank you dear ASS! (oh, dear, just hadn’t realised your initials spelt THAT!)

    • Jeff December 15, 2010 at 5:11 pm

      Hehe, I’m surprised at how few people notice our humorous acronym. We really didn’t choose the name because of the initials, but I get a kick out of it.

  198. james riddle December 15, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    your software is great / can’t wait to use the next product that i win
    customer service is the best also

  199. Gabriel December 15, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    Only recently became aware of Alien Skin Software – purchased Exposure on the recommendation of another photog and have loved it- excited to give other pieces of your software a try!

  200. John Hopkins December 15, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    Howdy — and thanks for all the fun products you make.

  203. Holger December 15, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    Oh, pick me. Please. With sugar on top and a cherry. πŸ™‚ I’d love to own Exposure. This year has been pretty rough, so I have been forced to spend most of the money I had been saving up for software for other more ordenary things. An unexpected software gift would be a really big xmas present.

    Anyway, cool idea and thanks for the chance. πŸ™‚

    Kind regards

  204. Irene December 15, 2010 at 3:01 pm

    Scrivo dall’Italia ed uso un traduttore online, perdonate il mio pessimo inglese!
    Ho provato i vostri plugin, non li ho acquistati perchè non ho soldi, ma sono veramente eccezionali.
    Vincere per me sarebbe il massimo. Grazie!

    I write from Italy and use an online translator, forgive my bad English!
    I tried your plugins, I have not purchased because I have no money, but they are really exceptional.
    Winning for me would be the best. Thanks!

  205. Anne December 15, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    I’ve been using your products since they first came out, and Snapart 2 blows my mind every time I use it, which is often. I am literally drooling over your other products, and would like to have them all- (I began my love affair with Alienskin when Xenofex first appeared. I’ve never ‘won’ any free software-and would be in nirvana if that happened. You guys are true visionary artists…..thank you. Anne

  206. Nikki December 15, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    What a generous give away! I would love to win.

  207. Richard Waugh December 15, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    You guys and girls at Alien Skin should get some kind of award for returning true ‘feel’ to photography, especially through ‘Exposure.’ There is a generation of youngsters though who have never shot a roll of film or printed a print. They should be giving you the award because most will never know just how easy and also inexpensive programs such as Exposure have made achieving those effects that took so much time, skill and money in the past. Christmas Cheers from Australia to all at Alien Skin.

  208. Marc December 15, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    Tried out other filters, Alien Skin is a great product and easy to use, so many options!

  209. Andrew Oliver December 15, 2010 at 3:07 pm

    I would love to own an AlienSkin product. Ultimate dream

  211. Howard Dale December 15, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    Been using the trial version of Bokeh2. Great piece of software.

  212. Gregory Leno December 15, 2010 at 3:16 pm

    I’ve been looking for something like your this for a long time now. I knew there had to be a way to digitally script and apply certain film looks and curves. Enter Exposure 3… problem solved. Thanks.
    The rest of your line up looks great as well.
    Are you working on anything for Video?

    • Gregory Leno December 15, 2010 at 3:20 pm

      Dohh!…. first sentence should read “like this for a long time” take out “your”

    • Jeff December 15, 2010 at 5:06 pm

      We get a lot of requests for video. We are not working on that at the moment, but we have a tutorial video on how to use some of our products on video in Photoshop Extended.

  213. Paul Holbrook December 15, 2010 at 3:18 pm

  216. Emil Bilinski December 15, 2010 at 3:30 pm

    i’m using Exposure for many years each update brings a lot of great new features, I’m loving it.
    i also tested bokeh the last 30 day’s its a perfect solution to simulate depth of field, if you don’t have the right technical equipment to get the requested result.
    look forward to see what comes next year.
    merry christmas and a happy new year!!!

  232. Ray Baker December 15, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    Twas the night before Christmas,
    and in the bowels of my house,
    I was staring at my monitor,
    with my hand on my mouse.
    When up on the rooftop,
    there arose such a big clatter,
    An Alien had landed,
    And my dogs started to scatter.
    He came down thru the chimney,
    And before my very eyes,
    he had bundles of software,
    it was quite a suprise.
    He had big eyes,
    and his legs were tiny,
    I think someone forgot
    to give him a hiney.
    But he was cool
    and I thanked him,
    as he took to his ship.
    He said he had to give
    the F16’s the slip.
    As he left the rooftop,
    at the speed of light,
    I could hear the echos,
    in the darkenss of night.
    On Eyecandy, on Snap Art,
    On Bokeh, On Blowup,
    On Xenofex, on Exposure,
    We must get this ship up.
    I told this story to my kids,
    and to my wife.
    They said it was the wildest story
    they had heard in their life.
    But I dont care,
    Im as happy as can be,
    The Alien left the software bundles with me.

    I use a few of your software for artistic photography (after being a commercial photographer for 27 years) and your software is wonderful to work with. My images become very unique while selecting through the software. A big thank you to your company! A wonderful addition for photographers.

  236. jennifer fuller December 15, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    Dear Alien Skin,
    The weather outside is frightful, but your soft__ware is delightful
    I’ve a ton of photos that don’t flow, but with your software I would fix this while it snows.

    • Jeff December 15, 2010 at 5:02 pm

      Thanks for the holiday cheer! Jennifer, you know we always have software for you.

  237. Ron Burston December 15, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    Message from Shropshire, England (Birthplace of the industrial revolution). Now a non commercial user (very late seventies). Use CS5, Zenofex and Snap Art. Only person at Alien Skin I have spoken to on the telephone Is Mr Jeff Butterworth, very helpful and obliging. Many thanks. Main interests action photography (Equestrian and Racing) and dogs, plus of course the world famous ‘The Worlds first Iron Bridge’.

  238. Jeffrey Glasser December 15, 2010 at 5:03 pm

    I use Alien Skin Blowup on every image since I still use film (what can I say, there are still some of us out there). Exposure looks like it would be a great asset.

  239. Curt Oxford December 15, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    I love Alien Skin software. They make my designs stand out.

    I love Alien Skin! Would love the opportunity to try out Exposure as well as other photo products. I am a graphic and web designer and enjoy using Alien Skin!! πŸ™‚

  246. Paul Swendsen December 15, 2010 at 5:33 pm

    Love your stuff, and my favorite hat still says, “I’m from f**king outer space.”

    • Jeff December 15, 2010 at 5:35 pm

      We used to have t-shirts that said that too. I still have one, but I wear it rarely now that little kids are running around here frequently.

  247. Tricia December 15, 2010 at 5:36 pm

    Love your products. It would be great to win one of the products I don’t already own such as Bokeh.

  248. Shabnam December 15, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    Absolutely genious products!! Would love to own them and show the world just what is possible!! πŸ™‚

  249. Michael Atkins December 15, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    I’d love to win, but it’ll be hard to choose whether to add blow up, exposure or bokeh to my eye candy & snap art.

  250. Lauri December 15, 2010 at 5:59 pm

    this is a great giveaway, especially for those of us who can only afford the trial versions of things right now! love what I have used so far.

  251. Mark Zukowski December 15, 2010 at 6:00 pm

    I’ve enjoyed using Snap Art and just posted an example on your Flickr site. Terrific software.

  252. Sherry Brunkhardt December 15, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    I love the filters for web design. Now I want Bokeh and Exposure! Win or buy, I WILL get them.

  253. George December 15, 2010 at 6:12 pm

    Who wouldn’t want to try for a great plug-in for just a comment?

  254. Simon Rimmington December 15, 2010 at 6:12 pm

  258. JAG December 15, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    As a student, one of my teachers and I really loved Eye Candy. It would be great to get a new copy — it has been years and I would bet that it is now even better.

  259. Media Fairy December 15, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    My late ex husband got me hooked on all matter of Alien Skin eons ago; first with Eye Candy, then Splat, then Xenofex. I’ve used them on both Mac and *shiver*, Windows (yes, yes, I’m a Mac Queen) and have always loved blowing people away with all the plugins (along with Human Softwares cool stuff) and how I can work some serious fa-bu-lus-ness into my graphics. I’ve never had any problems (except using it until I do a couple of upgrades in Photoshop, then can’t use the old Alien Skin stuff….but hey, doesn’t matter, always goodness and fun with these products). The evolution of technology makes it fun to do stuff you never could do before.

    • Jimmy December 16, 2010 at 11:33 am

      Hi Media Fairy,

      If you ever have a problem with our software, please contact our help desk. We want to get you back up and running ASAP. Here’s a link.

  260. Rodger Kingston December 15, 2010 at 6:39 pm

    I have used Blow Up on almost a daily basis for years, and wouldn’t DREAM of being without it!. Thanks guys.

  261. Victor December 15, 2010 at 6:44 pm

    Alien Skin software is “Out of this world!”

  262. Paul Larson December 15, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    What a great give away. Although I have used the demos, I just haven’t been able to buy the products as of yet. Best of luck and congrats to whomever wins!

  269. aalevy December 15, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    I have been using Alien Skin products for some time now. The company is one of the finest. I contact Jim White often who gives me excellent advice. I love Exposure 2, Bokeh, Eye Candy and Snap Art 2.
    In the near future I plan to upgrade to Exposure 3 and Bokeh 2..All these products are fun to work with and enjoy. If i am chosen for a free gift, I will greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you for the great fun and use of these products.

    Aaron Levy

  270. K. Pasholli December 15, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    Who would not love ALIEN SKIN software?!? This product needs no blog as it speaks for itself, saying “Awesome am I.” You have but to try it once and without doubt will use it over and over again. I have used it for years, i used it today and will do so tomorrow.

  271. Dean December 15, 2010 at 7:21 pm

    Alien Skin has a long tradition of backing up their best-in-class software with best-in-class customer support!

    You make us better designers year-round, and this holiday giveaway is the frosting on the Yule Log!

  273. Gary December 15, 2010 at 7:24 pm

    Creative, fun, just plain good stuff…thanks Alien Skin…you take my images to another place
    and time!

  274. Monte Krause December 15, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    …Hello everyone!
    I started using Eye Candy as version 3.0 was released, and ever since, have made it, and other Alien Skin plug-ins, a regular part of my graphics, fine art, Web, and music video creative workflow. Once I became familiar with the potential of many of the filters, my ideas could be realized almost as fast as I could visualize them. Installed on my PC right now are: Eye Candy (versions: 4000, 5 Impact, & 6), Snap Art (versions 1 & 2), Brokeh 1, Xenofex 2, Blow Up 2, Exposure 2, and Image Doctor 2.
    ~Monte, Dallas, TX

  275. Steve Gollis December 15, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    Howdy, and thanks for the great stuff!

  276. Brian PaperSponge December 15, 2010 at 7:27 pm

  277. Patti Zolnick December 15, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    I love your products and hope to be picked as a winner thisfriday!

  278. Terry sanders December 15, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    Along with Kai’s Power Tools, which are now useless since they were bought, Alien Skin has provided some of the most useful plug ins in the business.

  279. Ted Lewis December 15, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    I am an avid user of Snap Art 2 and Bokeh. The ease with which you can convert ordinary good photos into true great works of Art using either of these 2 programs is ablosutely amazing. Ya gotta love em.

  280. Noel Butcher December 15, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    I’d really like some of your software but I think it should go to Ray Baker for the effort he put in.

  281. Dulany Lingo December 15, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    Eye Candy is also my favorite. I’m supposed to be a retired Graphic Artist. How did I get sooooo many jobs this Christmas Season probably had a lot to do with the use of so many of my Alien Skin filters. I remember when I bought my first filter and would speak with Jeff Butterworth a lot because it was almost beyond my capacity, but OH BOY when I got good, I got good.
    THANKS, Dulany

  282. Edward Mattis December 15, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    Interested in BOKE

  283. Gary Biram December 15, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    Hi! Guys, You have had a busy year with all the platform and OS updates including the software people doing their thing as well. Can’t wait to get the 64 bit update for Eye Candy, hopefully Shadowlab will eventually be included, as really miss that one.

    This is a great promotional idea and the winners will be ecstatic, and those who enter have the opportunity to participate, well done!

    Have a great Xmas and a Healthy & Wealthy New Year for 2010.

    Kind regards

    Gary Biram

    • Jimmy December 16, 2010 at 10:46 am

      Hi Gary,

      64 bit Eye Candy 6 is available now. There’s an article about it here. Check it out!

    • Jeff December 17, 2010 at 10:43 am

      The old Shadow Lab filter has become the Perspective Shadow filter in Eye Candy 6. You can find it in the Photoshop menu Filter > Alien Skin Eye Candy 6 : Text & Selection > Perspective Shadow. It does everything the old Shadow Lab did, plus lots of neat perspective stretching for 3-D shadows.

  284. Haleyjade December 15, 2010 at 8:13 pm

    I’m in!

  285. Janet December 15, 2010 at 8:26 pm

    What are the chances? Great plugins are even better when they’re free πŸ™‚

  313. Angela A Stanton December 16, 2010 at 2:11 am

    I absolutely love your software! I own Exposure (awesome product!!!!!!), Bokeh and Bokeh 2 (fantastic stuff!!), Nature Art (amazing clever things it can do!), and also Eye Candy (love this too!). My all time favorite is Exposure! lately no picture leaves my hand until it was processed by it. I use your software in both Lightroom 3 and CS5–I particularly love its Lightroom 3 integration; I rarely have to move a picture into CS5 as a result.

    Love your products! Keep them coming!


  314. Shauna December 16, 2010 at 2:19 am

    What a great Christmas present…I would be thrilled to get it!

  315. David Vela December 16, 2010 at 2:35 am

  316. Aldo Ricchiero December 16, 2010 at 2:48 am

    I really appreciate people concerned with quality, art and a true drive to innovative approaches to life. I had the opportunity to use your products as a demo in the past and was very impressed by the possibilities of enhancing images and creating attractive atmospheres. In my work I see the importance of having trully engaging images for my pieces. So, this wonderful gift would come with great timing. I thank you and your team for your superb work. Merry Christmas!

  317. Mikael December 16, 2010 at 3:20 am

    Would like to try your software.

    Happy holidays!

  318. André Olwage December 16, 2010 at 3:27 am

    I have bought Eye Candy 6 and Xenofex 2 which have been great to use. Unfortunately the exchange rate from Dollar to ZAR becomes extremely expensive to buy more such as Snap Art & Blow Up. (Will have to save up) Keep up the good work. Great products. Thanks

  319. Stephen Smith December 16, 2010 at 3:33 am

    I love your products. I use the first edition of Bokeh and Eye Candy. Thanks for your great products. I look forward to when I can afford to buy more of your software. Keep up the good work.

  320. Dianne December 16, 2010 at 3:36 am

    Appreciate the chance to win your software. I’ve used Snap Art and Image Doctor (which are both amazing) as trials, and am saving up to make a purchase . . . sure would be nice to win, though!

    Happy Holidays and continued success!

  321. Suzanne Wyatt December 16, 2010 at 4:16 am

    I love your products, I just wish they were a bit more affordable for someone living on a fixed income, they are definitely out of my reach to purchase and usually by the time I’ve managed to save up enough the price has gone up once again. I hope you will pick me! My church purchased photoshop/fireworks for me, so it would be a boon to win eye candy. My laptop, my graphics programs, and the internet have become my best friends. I hope those who win enjoy their software! Salute!

  322. Dave Jones December 16, 2010 at 4:32 am

    Well with the amount of responses above I’ve next to no chance but you’ve got to be in it to win it… and as it’s well worth it, I’m deinitely in!!! πŸ˜‰

  323. Amanda Wyatt December 16, 2010 at 4:34 am


    I have Xenofex 2 at home and Eye Candy at work – trying desperately to get Eye Candy for home too – its amazing! Any chance of an upcoming sale πŸ™‚

    I’ve used Eye Candy 6 for over a year and it’s an irreplaceable and must-have tool in my process of illustration. It’s plug-ins let me achieve amazing things that would have been prohibitively difficult and time-consuming without your filter set. Thanks much, and I look forward to what plug-ins your efforts product in the future.

  365. Henry Belloso December 16, 2010 at 6:56 pm

    As an artistic photographer I was attracted to Snap Art 2 to add a new dimension to my photos; after trying the filters for some time some friends asked me to have some prints made for them on canvas to decorate their homes, the most popular effect is Impasto.

    I’ve used your software for years, for both Photoshop and After Effects. Your software is always top notch, and you have the best customer support around. Thanks for that.

    I have taught Web Design a Development at a community college for many years, and neither I nor my students can say enough about Alien Skin software, in particular Eye Candy. My classes employ Eye Candy for every project, and most of the students go on to purchase their own. It’s so refreshing to see the eyes of a budding Webmasteer light up when they see the many stunning possibilities available from Eye Candy. They and I love it!

    I purchased Eye Candy 6 and Xenofex 2. Both these products have been awesome tools professionally and personally. They have made my job easier with just a few clicks. Your support with issues has also been great. I love these products keep up the tremendous work!
